Win2008 TS Remote Apps

I have setup Win2008 TS Remote Apps and browsing to http://server/ts requests a username and password - can somone please answer what these credentials are authenticating against in Terminal Servies?
Then a list of my Remote apps appears in the web window and clicking on any of these also requests an RDP username and password to connect to the remote app - can somone please answer what these credentials are authenticating against in Terminal Servies?

Thanks

Terminal Services authenticates with Active Directory. It is the credentials of an Active Directory user which are being requested when you log in to Remote Apps.

If you haven't got the TS server on an Active Directory domain, it is using the credentials of the local user accounts on that particular server.

Browsing to http://server/ts requests credentials, then after authentication the remote apps webpage appears. Selecting any of these remote apps the TS again asks for credentials. Is there any way of get rid of one of these checks?

Not that I am aware of - since the first authentication and second authentication is passing credentials to two separate parts of the server software.

I have just found that browing to http://server/ts requests credentials but entering ANY domain user credentials allows access to the remote apps screen.
The TS is a server on our domain and 'remote desktop users' are only admin and 'TS Users' which contains a single test account.
Any ideas
Thanks
